Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity (EDI)
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Statement
The Department of Astronomy and Planetary Science (DAPS) strives to build a diverse and inclusive community at Northern Arizona University. We value collaborations between individuals of diverse backgrounds, identities, appearances, and beliefs, such as, but not limited to, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, faiths, abilities, socio-economic statuses, family histories, education levels, documentation statuses, body shapes, veteran statuses, and intersections therein. The field of astronomy and planetary science must continue to make progress on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in order to establish a more just community. Faculty, students, researchers, and staff within DAPS strive to be strong advocates for education and action on diversity related topics. Through these efforts, the DAPS community aspires to be a leader in creating a more inclusive environment for all scientists in our field and we invite both members of our community and external to DAPS to hold the department accountable to these ideals.
